IAMA concludes its 10th Anniversary with a full production of the final installment in Leslye Headland’s “Seven Deadly Plays” cycle — a black comedy that explores the final sin of “pride” through one family’s feverish clash over who is right and who is crazy. The Dahl family gathers to celebrate Christmas in their rural Connecticut home. Raised as strict Christians and overachievers, the four adult children (along with their partners) have grown into varying degrees of belief and success. Their initially joyful reunion quickly reveals an American family riddled with competition, xenophobia and mental illness.
Cult of Love premiere’s Thursday, May 24 at 8 p.m., Fridays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 7 p.m.
